The Henderson Water Utility said there will be a scheduled water service interruption for North Middle School and Franklin Avenue on Wednesday, said a release from the city of Henderson.
HWUwill shut off the water supply to the affected area beginning at 5 PM. The interruption is expected to last for approximately four hours, said the release.
The shutoff is in support of the I-69 project occurring in the area, said the release.
The release said that after the service interruption, residents and businesses in the affected area are advised that a boil water advisory will be in effect for the subsequent 24 to 48 hours. This advisory is a precautionary measure to ensure the safety and quality of the water supply during the transition period.
Here are some tips:
- Use bottled or boiled water for drinking and to prepare and cook food.
- If bottled water is not available, bring water to a full rolling boil for one minute. After boiling, allow the water to cool before use.
- Boil tap water even if it is filtered (for example, by a home water filter or a pitcher that filters water).
- Do not use water from any appliance connected to your water line, such as ice and water from a refrigerator.
